Best Cutting Boards

Choosing the best cutting board is a subjective topic and pretty hard to nail down to a single list of favorites. However, one thing that is unavoidable is that you can’t use glass cutting boards when working with acidic foods, such as citrus, or foods with tomatoes.

Here are the three different sizes of cutting boards I recommend as the best ones:

An 18”x12” board is a good small cutting surface which will fit in your sink and will sit nicely on a counter top.

A 12”x18” board is a great size if you’re tight on space.

A larger 18”x24” board is great for extended use and all around home and kitchen. I have three in the kitchen. Having a larger diameter also makes it easier to chop vegetables and ensures there is more surface around the edges of the board for cutting.

Pros:

  • Excellent quality
  • Juice groove prevents juices from spillages and keeps them where they should

Cons:

  • It is expensive

Juice groove technology is definitely an innovation worth looking into. By creating a groove on the surface of a cutting board, you end up creating a reservoir for your juices. By keeping them in the groove, you prevent them from spilling all over your countertops.

With the HOMWE set, you get three boards with different sizes and finishes, and all the boards have a juice groove. Apart from that, these boards, as well as being non-porous and BPA-free, are also dishwasher safe. HOMWE clearly thought about every aspect of their products.

For Serving, Baking and Prep | Walnut Finish.

Anyone who has ever sliced boiled eggs on a cutting board knows why there should be an unnecessary layer between me and my countertops. Boil water sometimes, and you’ll see it go right through the board. Part of the reason why is that chopping boards need to be super thin.

A traditional cutting board is also designed to be static. But with this chopping board/tray combo, preparation and clean-up can be as much a breeze as it is a mess.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Which type of cutting board is the best?

All good knife aficionados know a proper cutting board is a central part of the kitchen. Wood is an important material for a cutting board and the key aspect that makes it the best is its durability. This means that its density and natural resistance to microbes and bacteria is probably its biggest asset. This is why plastic and other materials are not as good choices as wood.

It’s also the reason why wood cutting boards need to be sanitized more often than other materials. The rule is to sanitize the board after each use. Wood cutting boards can become a nest for bacteria which will spread to other foods if it isn’t properly washed and sanitized. If anyone in your home is sick, it is OBLIGATORY to sanitize it after each use.

What is the healthiest cutting board to use?

When making your decision, make sure your cutting board is made of materials that won’t leach harmful chemicals into your food. Even if you cut cooked meat, it will still need to be HEALTHY. Some of the safest boards include bamboo, silicone, and hard wood.

Which is better wood or plastic cutting board?

Now, that’s a question that has an obvious answer. Anytime I need to choose between wood or plastic cutting boards, I pick the plastic. I find plastic to be a safer and more sanitary option, and they tend to be cheaper than wooden cutting boards. If you can, get a really big plastic cutting board. I’ve heard that making sure you get something spacious will help to prevent food from getting stuck in cracks and crevasses, which helps to cut down on bacteria and mold and other nasty things.

Lighter cutting boards are also a good idea, and a plastic cutting board is always going to be lighter than a wood cutting board.

What kind of cutting board does Gordon Ramsay use?

I use the edge grain butcher block boards from The Prepared Pantry. I like them because they have a bit of texture to them, and are built to last. It’s great quality at a great price.

Conclusion

A great cutting board will make all the difference when it comes to preparation and cutting! We hope you have found this article to be very useful in helping you make that decision as well. If you are still not sure which board to get, ask yourself the following questions: Quality (how durable does it feel?), Size (is it large enough?), Shape (does it perform best for my needs?), and Safety (does it have a coating?) We believe we’ve addressed all those in this guide.
